A *NEW* PROGRAM FOR GRAPHIC DESIGN
DAVID REINFURT NY
This certainly is not a carefully crafted collection of rules, guidelines, and methods intended to shore up graphic design as a relevant discipline. It is inevitably more of a digressive, discursive ramble, an occasionally high-speed pitch across any number of subjects and settings, though never possibly enough. Anyone else, by definition, would do this differently. It’s limited, as much by my imagination and by my experience as by the practical constraints of a book. But in its form is also its argument. So let me be explicit: When you’ve finished A *New* Program for Graphic Design, rip it up, throw it away, and get busy assembling your own.
Now, let’s get started.
David Reinfurt is 1/2 of Dexter Sinister [with Stuart Bertolotti-Bailey], 1/4 of The Serving Library [with Francesca Bertolotti-Bailey, Stuart Bertolotti-Bailey, and Vincenzo Latronico] and 1/1 of O-R-G inc.
Dexter Sinister started as a small workshop on the lower east side of Manhattan and has since branched pragmatically into projects with and for contemporary art institutions. The Serving Library publishes an annual journal, maintains a physical collection, and circulates PDF texts through its website. O-R-G is a small software company. David currently teaches at Princeton University and his work is included in the permanent collections of Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Walker Art Center, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. He was the 2016-2017 Mark Hampton Design Fellow at the American Academy in Rome
David will meet the public during a talk on his last publication A *New* Program for Graphic Design and the links behind it. The book synthesizes the pragmatic and experimental aspects of pedagogical approaches, from modernism to the end of the 20th century, to transmit the advanced principles of contemporary design - Typography, Gestalt, Interface - to non-specialist audiences. The contents of the book took shape during a lecture-performance [hosted at the IN-FO.CO studio, LA, 2018], in which the author artfully compressed his teaching experience at Princeton University into 3 days of 6 lessons per day of 45 minutes each. The volume, published by Inventory Press LA and Distributed Art Publisher NY, will also be present in the context of the SPRINT Art Book Fair [23—24 NOV, Spazio Maiocchi - Artifact]

LEONHARD LAUPICHLER Berlin
A meticulous research that brings out an emotional anthropology of typography, in which references and codes are elaborated to return to a new emerging, contaminated and liquid landscape in a site-specific installation x Artifact.
‘Typography has always been essential to graphic design. Designers do not only focus on making reading as enjoyable as possible, but also intend to create moods, reflect values and aesthetic impressions with their work. Typefaces hold the power to communicate more than just the words and sentences they spell. So far, most high-quality and approved typefaces are mainly issued by Type Foundries. In recent years, especially on social media platforms, the genre of independent typeface design by individual non-professionals has emerged. My bachelor’s thesis deals with the curation of typefaces by influential and up-and-coming designers who focus on the aesthetics and emotionally influential power their typefaces hold. NEW AESTHETIC showcases modern typeface design in all its facets; the design is bold, innovative and, most importantly, detached from the conventions of traditional Type Foundries.’ leonhardlaupichler.com

Alessandro Di Pietro, Tania Grace Knuckey Genève, Viola Leddi, Petra Rocca, Matteo Rubbi, Giovanni Zanda
Through BLADE—BANNER artists are invited to produce an image all-over inkjet printed in a 100 x 100 cm silk fabric module, as a pixel cut from their world. Participation is addressed to Italian artists or artists based in Italy, as a sign of support to the local community. This series of works is a collection, which includes thirty-nine contributions, produced by _\|/_ and showed during the salon, fed every year by new collaborations, with the idea of building a nomadic exhibition that may involve, in the future, more or less institutional sites. The banners exist in two copies, one donated to the author while the other is kept in the collection.
The artists involved this year are:
— Alessandro Di Pietro, FIÜFIÜT!VIÜT! 2019 | Alessandro Di Pietro 1987, lives and works in Milano. In 2017 he participated as Italian Fellow at the American Academy in Rome residency program. Among the main solo shows: Sonnenstube, Lugano 2019 Marsèlleria, Milano 2018, La Plage, Paris 2017, CAB Centre d’Art Bastille Grenoble, double solo with Jacopo Miliani, 2015. He has also participated in group exhibitions in many galleries and museums, among which we mention: Villa Medici, Rome 2019, MAMBO, Bologna 2018 and 2015, American Academy in Rome 2018, Fondazione Baruchello, Rome and Marsèlleria, New York 2017, Quadriennale, Rome 2016.
— Tania Grace Knuckey, Hey Good-Looking 2019 | Tania Grace Knuckey 1987, is a textile designer and mixed-media artist living and working in Geneva. She graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2009 and from The Royal College of Art London in 2012 with an MA in Mixed Media Textiles. Her artistic practice is playful with an unapologetic bold use of colour, which is always the result of a steady research. She seeks to surprise and to unsettle the norm, always questioning conventional notions of form and function. She is currently at the Istituto Svizzero in Milano for a six month residency.
— Viola Leddi, Interno Tigrato 2019 | Viola Leddi 1993, lives and works between Milano and Geneva, where she’s now attending the Work.Master program at HEAD.

— Petra Rocca, Istruzioni di forza 2019 | Petra rocca 1993, graduated in Visual Arts at Brera Fine Arts Academy in Milano. In her research, she explores proximity and relationship, constantly referring to the body, which is not always present. Using video, text, audio e performance experimentation, she is interested in the complexity of intimacy and its consequences. Discontinuous and paradoxical narration hangs in the balance between reality and imagination, autobiographical fact and subjective experience.
— Matteo Rubbi, Light Years Night Tears 2019 | Matteo Rubbi 1980, graduated at Brera Fine Arts Academy in Milano and he is co-founder of Cherimus Association, focused on the development of the social and cultural heritage of Sulcis Iglesiente south-west Sardinia.

In December 2019 Matteo Rubbi will be in a residency program at LAP, Montalvo Arts Center, Saratoga, USA, and in the spring of 2020 at the Camargo Foundation, Cassis, France.
— Giovanni Zanda, A card game, a title of a children’s book, a government discourse 2019 | Giovanni Zanda Cagliari, 1992 lives in Milano, where he studies Visual Arts at Brera Fine Arts Academy. Currently his practice focuses on the topic of sadness as a wide-spread feeling within the late capitalist society and on the constant pursuit of happiness. His works have been shown in group exhibitions such as SAVAGE, at Otto Zoo gallery in Milano, and Divani&Divani, in the context of Walk-in Studio 2019, Milano.

DÓRA MAURER — Aranyok / Proportionen / Proportions
10min, b/n | 1979 | courtesy INDEX Edition/sixpackfilm
In Proportions Maurer, lying on a long clean strip of paper, uses her own body height as a benchmark, then splits this distance into halves, then quarters. After further labeling the quarters she creates a musical staff based on her own physical proportions and fills in the staff by using her own body as the notes. The essence of ballet and ballet experience is repetition. It is the presented fragment of a process, or the recording and use thereof with simple and minimalistic devices, gestures and crystallized from their context by the means of repetition, thus receiving a specific meaning. Therefore, repetition that provides processes with a rhythm and character appears as choreography and creates sensitivity in the spectator, which makes one perceive fertile tension and beauty springing from the differentiation between elements of repetition and from repetition itself. [István Antal – courtesy INDEX Edition/sixpackfilm]
Dora Maurer (born 1937 in Budapest) is a Hungarian artist whose work has spanned a 50-year career. She works in almost every medium, from film and photography to painting, performance and sculpture . Principally achieving recognition in the 1970s with avant-garde work, Maurer has developed her art career from works with contemporary and modern influences that have been shown worldwide. All of her art is based on mathematical and complex system processes. Most of Maurer's work follows the theme of showing options to the viewer and what the viewer can do with those options. Many of her works break down simple actions so the viewer can really view the piece as movement, not a photograph of movement

Ossì Roma | PORN THIS WAY
We will dive into the new fourth issue of Ossì - 'Nascondino' - which contains a porn story written for the first time by four hands of two lovers, Francesco Pacifico and Francesca Mancini, accompanied by the photos of Michele Baron and a sex playlist by Venerus.
Ossì, (like Oh yes!) Is a well-made and self-produced porn journal. In each issue, a story stunted by worlds that we hope really exist and the sexy photos taken by someone you would like to know. Plus, a proper sex playlist. Ossì is the erotic fanzine that is good for our culture and our society. What it takes to accept sexuality as something magnificent, which excites with intelligence and rewards beauty in its broadest sense. Ossì, in fact, is beautiful. Ossì is an idea by Alice Scornajenghi, the graphic project is curated by Francesca Pignataro, editing on texts is by Marzia Grillo | @ossi_fanzine

Johanna Maierski | COLORAMA Berlin
‘How should i know that this is an advice to be followed and not a warning’.
‘ – When you tell her that you found this book for her, she replies that she has to wind herself up to that level again – and then she disappears for two months.’
A talk about: making books is like building a mould for someone to pour their train of thought into - but sometimes you pour back. Johanna Maierski will give a talk about the urgency of being a selfmade duck and collaboration [in general, and in specific in the comic-residency Clubhouse] - how production informs the content of all Colorama titles and what this has to do with a book about constructing houses.
Colorama is a publishing house and risoprinting studio based in Berlin and run by Johanna Maierski since 2015. Colorama is dedicated to collaboration, observation, and production. The publications feature the works of current comic-artists exploring the means of assembling and storytelling | @coloramaprint | @coloramaclubhouse

KABUL Torino | K-TOUR - VISITORS
VISITORS is the third volume of the series K-POCKET GUIDE published by KABUL magazine. The book is focused on the 'othering' as a discursive process by which dominant groups identify and define subordinate groups as inferior and threatening. Inside the book, Gaia Giuliani, Boris Groys, Thomas Nail, Oleksiy Radynski, Saskia Sassen and Daniel Trilling outline an alternative imaginary against the patriarchal and normative society of contemporary times, in order to promote an inclusive culture and to fight against each discrimination focused on sex, gender, culture and religion. K-POCKET GUIDE is an editorial series with brief books of interviews focused on a particular issue from the contemporary debate about arts and cultures. The books are thought as brief handbooks with texts, interviews and glossaries | kabulmagazine.com

Kristian B. Johansson | KLD Repro Copenaghen
A subjective framing of printing-culture in Myanmar
While walking through 31st and 32nd street in Yangon, Myanmar, you quickly notice the sounds of offset-printers and paper-cutting machines working through piles of paper transported through the streets on small wagons. After spending some months on these dense streets you will get some awareness of the printing culture in the once closed country. A culture where originality and perfection seem to be irrelevant and where bootlegging and crooked printing has a huge presence. These components might be seen as primitive and wrong but maybe we should consider these subjects again? The talk will focus on examples of bootlegging and the experience of talking and working with some of the people in these streets of Yangon.
Functioning as publication-platform and copy-shop locale, KLD Repro represents a curiosity towards printed matter and the modalities of production. Founded in Copenhagen in 2014 by artists Kristian B. Johansson and Wilfred Wagner, KLD Repro has since been producing and publishing a variety of artists books, magazines, tapes, essays and prose. As printers, artists and in a collaborative capacity, our aim is to question the post-digital age of print-on-demand, and investigate the demands-of-print in and of itself, as something fundamental to any community subculture | @kld_repro
BOOKS AS HOOKS
LA SCALA | Ginevra Dolcemare x Fuzao Studio
— The performance unfolds through a series of actions that resonate like snaps in the articulation of the imaginative impulse. Here two places of Milano - the street and the Teatro alla Scala - come together, bringing into play an optical filter that blurs the contrasts. The scenic space stands on the heaviness of the concrete and the ephemerality of the carnival. The action captures a circular narration rather than a linear one. The intertwining of mysterious objects activates projections, where the promises live.
Ginevra Dolcemare was born in Milano; graduated in Sculpture at Brera Academy of Fine Arts, she began the MA in Theater and Performing Arts at IUAV, Venice 2019. In her formative path she meets among others, Gianni Caravaggio, Claudia Castellucci, Darren O’Donnell, and Alice Rohrwacher. Since every movement is a matter of morality, her research looks at the displacement of the center of gravity, between the extremes of contact and distance | @ginevradolcemare | @fuzaostudio

A SCIENCE FICTION STORY | Stella Succi x NOBODYS
— The publication of the 2019 edition of NOBODYS deals with the themes of desire, self-definition, the relationship between body and space, chaos and the unconscious: these are the core themes of Nobodys - a research platform open to artists, theorists, curators and local and international organizers, aimed at sharing practices in the performing arts. There will be moments of collective action in dialogue with the practices of sharing, of spontaneous and horizontal exercise.

EVERY ME | Costanza Candeloro x ALTALENA
— Book launch & reading - the spirit of the dogs is magnetic - a novelette by Costanza Candeloro x ALTALENA.
The story is set in a city with recognizably Bolognese features, and follows the actions of a series of dogs which differ in social background, size, age and lifestyle. Through some of their specific expressions, including barking or leaving smelling traces around the city, they create a network of communication, of transmission of information. The contents of these 'information traffics' aim to find a point of connection between the different social universes they belong to; they build a parallel system in which these realities cooperate: a purebred poodle can get in touch with a half-breed homeless dog creating a correspondence between the apparentely incompatible worlds of their respective owners. The background to these events are the parks of the residential areas of the city, where dogs are kept on a leash, as well as the social centers where they are left completely unattended during the holidays.

is the new club-storming collaboration between LAFAWNDAH and CÕVCO. United by a shared desire to return the dance to its natural state of freedom, FARA FARA can be seen and heard unapologetically expanding the maps of club, dance and trance musics across the globe. Theirs is a loud Kemistry, conjuring Quiet Storms. The visceral, theatrical character that marks both the artists’ solo work is channeled into b2b Dj sets that are part Three Non Blondes anarchy and part peak Metalheadz science. Theirs is a free approach to time and tempo, daring each other to take it faster and deeper. Cõvco’s RnB-concrète live sampling sculpts the lava flow of Lafawndah’s trickster bodymusic provocations. Meditation and aggression blur in a concussion of subs and polyrhythm, and the pair retain the right to pull the rug at all times. FARA FARA gives new flesh and teeth to the luminous, utopian spirit of hardcore that has haunted club music for the last two decades. Ancient, modern, sensual and furious, the duos sets have quickly become infamous for their unpredictable but precise crowd manipulation and joyous track selection. Kampala; Cairo; Soukous & Coupé décalé: South London Burroughs; Detroit: like all legendary sound systems.
LARA BROWN | vimeo.com/larabrown
Lara Ortiz Burgos, 1986 is part of The Optional Company since 2011, with which she has developed different works of scenic creation. For the last couple of years, she has carried out the Lara Brown project, in which, accompanied from different artists from all areas, she works based on her biography, identity, body and its transformation, using the stage as an artistic support and thought generator. Currently part of the collective SUGA, together with the artist SEPA. Lara has conceptualized the situation that elAMOR will develop at “A che punto siamo de la notte”. As a metaphor of how relationships stand in a night club, emotions and affections, crossings and separations will be made evident in a performative way. Lara herself and dancers Mar Aguiló Madrid, Anna Skorten Stockholm and Guillem Jiménez Barcelona will therefore unfold a series of connections during the SPRINT party, that sometimes will evolve under the music of Dj Da_Rocha Barcelona.
DA ROCHA | soundcloud.com/da_rocha
Vigo, 1994 is a multidisciplinary artist. After his beginnings in Hardcore-Punk and Post-Hardcore music, he began his career as a Dj and producer of electronic music, combining it with his visual arts exercises in Galicia, Portugal, France and Barcelona [in the latter city together with La Cera 13 collective]. In his own musical production he experiments with Ambient and Spoken Word, taking him to an area of ritual and trance character. Currently his sets of heterogeneous character move in around contemporary club music, deconstructing and combining the most tribal Bass, the Gqom, Whipped, Dembow or traditional Middle Eastern rhythms; all this always with an industrial dye.
GUILLEM JIMÉNEZ | @guillemjimenezz

is a company that promotes different artistic and cultural initiatives. It’s desire is to materialize ideas that question and explore the performative arts, integrating culture and society. Participating in the dialogue of contemporary issues, energizing spaces for interaction, and also trying to open a debate on the private patronage in the contemporary cultural industry is part of our mission. In our productions we try to generate shifts of perception and original means of understanding time and language, while creating emotional and bodily intensities that demonstrate the imperceptible of the vital and creative experience.

TBD’C is a Milan-based queer artistic platform of girls of any gender and non-binary creatures, who have been promoting post-identity adventures since 2011, fostering a culture of visual, sonic, performative research and experimentation connected to the LGBTQAIXYZ community. For this occasion Sonia Brunelli, dancer-choreographer of Barokthegreat duo, will be grafted into the musical flow with movement incursions that relate to the hypnotic and magnetic genre of footwork, the style at the base of her current research. Barokthegreat operates within the vast range of the performing arts. Founded in 2008 by Sonia Brunelli and musician Leila Gharib, the duo explores scenic compositions based on a repetitive rhythmics that reveal something both anamorphic and also familiar. Their representations are focused mainly on the dynamics of adherence between the choreographic gesture, the physicality of sound and the architecture of space as an inhabitable device. They investigate the interface of theatres, clubs and site-specific locations.
THE RISO CLUB 19
geust Eilean Friis-Lund + TBA | in collaboration with Archivio Primo Moroni
Risograph is an eco-friendly printing method into which the chromatic attitude of silk printing meets the fast timing of photocopy reproduction and the softness of inkjet prints. It’s an awesome and professional — even if cheap — solution for little editions, due to its range of possibilities going from uniform tones to crazy analog patterns.
SPRINT is proud to host the yearly Risograph printing Workshop, officially opening the path towards the 7° edition, announcing a brand new collaboration involving the Archive Primo Moroni - 'Small but still impressive archive of memories, a relevant fragment of social and politic life between Sixties and Seventies, also glowing with the presence of many materials of the movements in the Eighties, shaped by cultures of the metropolitan ghetto' 〈P.Moroni〉 - a center of documentation existing since 1988 as an evolution of Calusca City Lights library, founded in Milano by Primo and moved into C.S.O.A. Cox18 in 1992, where the Archive is currently hosted.
We will develop together a project based on a structure specifically thought to reveal tricks ’n’ tips, to handle the technique both during the first phases of composition and the second ones ruled by printing, digging into materials selected from the Archive Primo Moroni.
THE RISO CLUB 19 will be curated by the Swiss designer Eilean Friis-Lund plus a guest TBA, coordinated by Elena Radice, artist/photographer, and supported in the printing practice by ATTO, a studio of design and communication.
